I think you come across pretty well there, Jeremy.

Here's a piece of me at the day job:

I know what you mean that it is quiet here and elsewhere, but I've been so swamped at work that I haven't had time to post new content here lately. Much to come though!

Non-Tolkien related: I hate myself on video, and I say "um" way too much (the boss threw me in front of the camera with no warning or prep), but if you really want to see my ugly mug...

Indeed, quiet everywhere. I have not bought much in the last month either. Seems to be a lack of rare/scarce/quality/interesting editions coming to market at the moment. Most of my purchases have just been New Books (mostly criticism). Though there are a few interesting new releases (and some more to come in the following months).

I suppose with the increase in the number of Tolkien Collectors over th e past number of years, it is inevitable that the scarcer editions will just become even more scarce as time goes on (and the books get placed permanently in collections).

Maybe if the Hobbit Movies become certain, it may encourage more books back onto the market.

In the current economic climate also, I suppose not too many seller's want to sell quality books into a poor market.

No idea what I am talking about really. Just speculating out of boredom.......

eBay been pretty poor too; I've only bought one Tolkien book this month!

I'm sure Parmastahir, who regularly updates this forum on his Tolkien calendar collecting (over in the 'Calendar' part of the forum), would be more than happy to advise you on where to sell (and who to perhaps).

Either that or eBay. Since I don't seriously collect calendars I'll leave value & collectability to those who know more...
